How did I miss this thread? I would have loved to say HI to fellow COTH'ers.
My Peteypuppy went in Open Training A and was a rock star, finishing on his dressage score of 23. Of course it didn't hurt that Bobby Costello was doing the riding. But I had the extremely important jobs of van driver, groom, jump setter, videographer, chief clapper and giver of treats.
Sadly I missed JER who was 3 horses after us in everything. As soon as Petey and Bobby were finished I walked back to the trailer with them and was not able to hang out to watch anyone until after I had put Petey away.
Who will be at SP II in two weeks? We will be there and would love to meet you all.
I have talked Maggie into running for President. She will be running on the Curly Haired Dog ticket. Her campaign slogan is "Don't be douchy or I'll pee on your carpet".
jen-s: I was the steward for Ring 6. I think I saw you - were you the Jennifer with the hand brace? I'm the blonde who grew in resemblance to a lobster with each passing minute in the sun.
I'll be volunteering at SPII in some capacity, not sure whether dressage or stadium. I don't like xc jump judging overly much honestly, unless there's a friend and wine in cooler or mulled form involved....
"Why would anybody come here if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense!"
